Gum recession is a condition where the gum tissue around the teeth wears away, leading to exposure of the tooth roots. It can be caused by factors such as periodontal disease, aggressive brushing, genetic predisposition, and more. Untreated gum recession can result in tooth sensitivity, root decay, and even tooth loss. At Southwest Dentistry, we recognize the significance of gum health and provide effective solutions, including Gum Grafting, to address gum recession.
The Gum Grafting Procedure
Gum grafting is a surgical procedure aimed at restoring gum tissue and covering exposed tooth roots. Our skilled team employs various grafting techniques, such as connective tissue grafts and free gingival grafts, to achieve optimal results. We carefully select the tissue source for grafting, including autografts (your own tissue), allografts (donor tissue), or xenografts (animal-derived tissue), ensuring the best outcomes. Throughout the procedure, we utilize advanced techniques and instruments to ensure successful gum grafting.
Benefits of Gum Grafting
Gum grafting offers numerous benefits for your oral health and overall well-being. By undergoing this procedure, you can expect the restoration of gum tissue and coverage of exposed tooth roots. This helps to prevent further gum recession and root sensitivity. Additionally, gum grafting contributes to enhancing your aesthetic appearance, restoring smile symmetry, improving oral health, and ultimately preventing tooth loss.
